12:30 Talks @ Langsdale: "Anime and the Poetics of Intervals"

Langsdale Library: Turner Learning Commons, third floor

Bring your lunch and join us in the Learning Commons room 319 in Langsdale Library for a series of informal talks by faculty from across the University.  

This month's speaker is Steven Leyva from the Klien Family School of Communication Design. In his talk, "Anime and Poetics of Intervals," Professor Leyva will explore the ways writers can invent, subvert, and push literary forms by borrowing aesthetic techniques from anime. Synthesizing ideas from anime theorist Susan J. Napier, poet and fiction writer, Chris Abani, and comic book artist and theorist, Scott McCloud, this short talk will present a number imaginative possibilities that writers may glean from watching and studying Anime as a lyric form.  

Twelve-Thirty Talks at Langsdale are a great opportunity for students to engage with professors outside the classroom, for faculty to generate opportunities for collaboration, or for anyone to learn something new!  We’ll provide lemonade and cookies, you provide the discussion.
